Keynote: Teachers Unify to End Gun Violence

March 23 at 6 p.m. EDT | PreK-12
AFT members Abbey Clements, Sarah Lerner and Sari Beth Rosenberg

Gun violence affects educators, students, families, classrooms, districts and communities all across the country, every single day. After the Oxford High School shooting in Michigan on Nov. 30, 2021, three AFT members—Abbey Clements, Sarah Lerner and Sari Beth Rosenberg—were trying to process the horror of yet another horrendous tragedy in a group text. Outraged with the frequency and acceptance of gun violence in all its forms, they decided to launch a national organization, Teachers Unify to End Gun Violence, whose mission is to elevate the stories we don’t hear about—the ripple effects and aftermath; to support school communities impacted by gun violence; and to raise our collective voices as those on the frontlines of this public health crisis for cultural and legislative change. Hear about their journey and how you can get involved.
